The province of Québec is where I live, a beautiful place with beautiful landscapes of nature. I live in the country. I love taking pictures of those wonderful scenes...

Québec is one of the 13 provinces and territories of Canada. It is bordered to the west by the province of Ontario and the bodies of water James Bay and Hudson Bay; to the north by Hudson Strait and Ungava Bay; to the east by the Gulf of Saint Lawrence and the province of Newfoundland and Labrador; and to the south by the province of New Brunswick and the U.S. states of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, and New York. It also shares maritime borders with Nunavut, Prince Edward Island, and Nova Scotia. Québec is Canada's largest province by area and its second-largest administrative division; only the territory of Nunavut is larger. It is historically and politically considered to be part of Central Canada (with Ontario).

Québec is the second-most populous province of Canada, after Ontario. It is the only one to have a predominantly French-speaking population, with French as the sole provincial official language. Most inhabitants live in urban areas near the Saint Lawrence River between Montreal and Québec City, the capital. Approximately half of Québec residents live in the Greater Montreal Area, including the Island of Montreal. English-speaking communities and English-language institutions are concentrated in the west of the island of Montreal but are also significantly present in the Outaouais, Eastern Townships, and Gaspé regions. The Nord-du-Québec region, occupying the northern half of the province, is sparsely populated and inhabited primarily by Aboriginal peoples. The climate around the major cities is four-season continental with cold and snowy winters combined with warm to hot humid summers, but farther north long winter seasons dominate and as a result the northern areas of the province are marked by tundra conditions. Even in central Québec, at comparatively southerly latitudes, winters are severe in inland areas.

Québec independence debates have played a large role in the politics of the province. Parti Québécois governments held referendums on sovereignty in 1980 and 1995; both were voted down by voters, the latter defeated by a very narrow margin. In 2006, the House of Commons of Canada passed a symbolic motion recognizing the "Québécois as a nation within a united Canada."

While the province's substantial natural resources have long been the mainstay of its economy, sectors of the knowledge economy such as aerospace, information and communication technologies, biotechnology, and the pharmaceutical industry also play leading roles. These many industries have all contributed to helping Québec become an economically influential province within Canada, second only to Ontario in economic output.

" The Quebecois have what are called "sacres". They are the uniquely Quebecois swear words and phrases, which are said to be the product of a long history of no separation of church and state. It was only in the 1960s that the Quebecois turned away from the Catholic church en masse. The Basics: Tabarnac - "tabernacle" Hostie - "host" (as in communion host) Hostie toastée - "toasted host" Câlisse - "chalice" Interesting fact: There is a Belgian movie entitled "Calvaire" (Calvary). "Calv"

"Quebecois French Quebecois French and France French are different enough from each other that Quebecois movies shown in France need French subtitles. The pronunciation is different and much of the vocabulary is from the Normandy of the 18th century. Like Australia for English, Quebec is a linguistic time capsule. "
